Ummm cycling with a fish in can take a long, long time. You'll want to buy this
to test your water, or take it to a petstore and get it tested for free (if you do that, demand numbers on ammonia, nitrItes and nitrAtes). When ammoni and nitrItes are 0 and nitrAtes are showing up as 5+, you're cycled and can do about 25% water changes a week.
